Bug#471121: xli: resource leaks leads to denial of service of X

Package: xli
Version: 1.17.0+20061110-2
Severity: important

Invoking xli multiple times eventually leads to a denial of service of
X, and the only way to overcome this is to kill X and restart:

> xli  -geometry ${HORSIZE}x${VERTSIZE}+0+0   -onroot -zoom auto -center   AV/Tas/IMG0001.JPG 
Comment, length 29:
LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01
AV/Tas/IMG0001.JPG is a 1536x1024 JPEG image, color space YCbCr, 3 comps., Huffman coding
  Zooming image by 92%...done
  Clipping image...(Adding border)...done
  Building XImage...done

> xli  -geometry ${HORSIZE}x${VERTSIZE}+0+0   -onroot -zoom auto -center   AV/Tas/IMG0001.JPG 
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Maximum number of clients reached
xli: Cannot open display ':0.0'

This is presumably the same as bug 387030 and 325689 against xloadimage.
